Storage Conveyors

Modern waste sorting plants tend to increasingly automate the process, in order to reduce production down time and labour costs.

Storage conveyors allow the storage of a certain amount of already selected material for a limited period of time, optimising the hourly production of the machines at the end of process (e.g. balers).

Storage conveyors, or silos, consist of slow conveyors, with steel containment walls, 2.0 to 2.5 meters in height, which receive material from sorting platforms or sensor based sorters; when full they empty their contents into baler feeding conveyor. They are belt conveyors for limited lengths, load and storage volumes, chain conveyors for more significant lengths, loads and volumes. They can be equipped on the discharge side with an automatic front door for higher volume capacity.

MAIN USE: temporary accumulation and storage of sorted material.
